Illinois Assessment of Readiness Testing

Good morning Timber Ridge Parents,

We will begin testing for the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) here at Timber Ridge Middle School this week, starting on March 12, 2019, and will end on April 24, 2019.

Please refer to the attached schedule or go on our TR website to determine what time your child will be testing during this 3-week window.

We ask that you please minimize absences and interruptions during the school day, especially 1st and 2nd periods. If you have any medical appointments, please check to ensure that it does not overlap a testing session. Once a student starts the test, they must complete the test during that session.

Here is the schedule:

  • 8th Grade IAR Reading test during 1st and 2nd period              
    • March 12-13, 2019

We are asking that our students bring in earbuds/headphones to use during the audio portion of the test. If your child does not have a pair, we will provide a set during IAR Testing.

We are looking forward to the results from our students this summer as this test will provide additional information for our students and programs we offer at our school. We are asking the students to continue doing their best on this and every assessment that each child takes at our school.

Please contact us at the school if you have any questions at 815-439-3410.
